This is awesome, I found it while looking at the daily media the other day. Meetup groups have started buying mini-blimps that look like the big one and flying them over cities. It's a really good idea and a great way to capitalize on the media the Blimp gets and get Ron Paul's name in front of more people:

Here's the original article:

And then here's an update where it's in the air over San Diego!

Way to go! :D

SAN DIEGO, December 21st:

She's only known about Ron Paul since early November, but Elizabeth Blane has already swung into action to spread the word about Ron Paul to fellow San Diegans. "As soon as I saw my first video of Dr. Paul, I was completely taken by him and the level of truth that emanates from him. I knew almost right away that he was a most unusual human being and a great American."

Ms. Blane, a 56-year-old business and life coach and mother of two, was energized when she watched a video of the Ron Paul Blimp take off and leave North Carolina. She went online and began researching balloons, blimps, helium, and city sign ordinances. Within three days, with support from other enthusiastic Ron Paul Meet-Up group members, Elizabeth had raised $1300 of $1800 needed to purchase a 20-foot advertising blimp to raise San Diego's awareness of Dr. Paul's presidential candidacy.

It's the creative ideas and relentless, cumulative efforts of individuals like Elizabeth that are successfully overcoming the concerted efforts of declining establishment media dinosaurs like The San Diego Union-Tribune to suppress Ron Paul's campaign and his message.

Great job, Elizabeth! Thanks!

This Ron Paul Micro-Blimp is expected to take to the air somewhere over San Diego for the first time tomorrow. Stay tuned for more news!

That's how to get the blimp to CA, get your own mini-blimp :)

This is a great way to spread the Ron Paul message cheap and efficiently. Every meet up group should consider this. This idea is working great here in San Diego.

We also get to keep the mini blimp for ever!

Here in Virginia a very generous Patriot has taken it upon himself to help the cause and has gotten coverage on all the local news stations here:

ABC/CBS/FOX (http://www.charlottesvillenewsplex.tv/home/headlines/12807952.html)

NBC (http://www.nbc29.com/global/story.asp?s=7541474)

The NBC one is showing on tonights news, the others were on yesterday on all three stations run by the same studio, pretty sweet. Now all we are waiting on is the local newspapers to pick it up. It has been flying the last couple of days in high profile areas adjacent to the central shopping locations in Charlottesville, and I know many many people have seen it/gotten them thinking about Dr. Paul. Next there the Blimp will be going to even better locations to spread Dr. Paul's name throughout Virginia!
